Day 1 of an 11 gallon batch I'm splitting to be a berliner weisse and a gose. Using the sour kettle method for the first time.

Wort finally seems sour enough (hopefully) to continue with the BW and Gose.

Tonight I kegged the second half of a split batch. The beer was designed as a saison.

70% 2 row (yes, not pils- lazy)
20% vienna
10% munich
30 IBUs of EKG at 60min
6 IBUs of EKG at 5 min

Overshot gravity and had OG of 1.065.

Fermented half with Belle Saison, finished at 1.003 for 7.6% ABV
Fermented half with US05, finished at 1.008 for 6.3% ABV

I'm classifying the Saison as an "Imperial Saison", but not sure what kind of beer I ended up with on the other one. It was quite malty on the gravity sample, and a little hot. Any suggestions?

The OG does fall into the category of a Belgian blonde. I'm not overly knowledgeable about specifics. I think it falls a little low of a Belgian golden ale and traditionally sugar is used for those (I think).

My Pumpkin Ale is fermenting away. After a bit of reading online I think I am going to start leaving my beer in primary the whole time. This one will be the test.

Yeah Rob, the numbers fit nicely into a couple categories but flavor/ingredients don't. I'll just call it a bastard ale.

It's quite malty upfront, a character I don't love. The EKG hops shine through on the finish though. It's quite smooth for its strength. I'll bring it to the next meeting anyway.

Maybe you're get to name it "3rd time's a charm"... probably not though

Bottling two gallons of Gose. The rest will be aged on mangoes and eventually dry hopped with Nelson Sauvin.

Made a 10 gal batch of white IPA, split in half and added cold steeped dark grain wort to 2nd half to turn into a black IPA.

So it's like a backwards Michlael Jackson IPA: noskcaJ leahciM IPA  :banana:
